>> when i invented this pillow, years ago, i also wanted to make sure that all my manufacturing is done by me. i did not want to outsource anything. i wanted everything made here in the united states. i wanted it to be the best ever made. if you say, well i want to buy a product that's made here in the u.s., you've got it. and you have a product that's going to effect everything you do in your daily life. to see my business go from 40 employees to 500 and some employees in a few short months was the most rewarding. it was almost surreal and now we have over 2,000 other jobs that are affected by it. and it's just amazing to see how it's grown to that and it's getting bigger because, and to help all the people that have bought the pillow, over 1,000,000 people. and uh, not only, i'm helping them two ways; helping them with jobs and helping people sleep. and it's very you know, i feel very blessed to be a part of that. >> being made in america is wonderful but, it's made right. >> i went from sleeping with three pillows stacked up and crunched to sleeping with one my pillow. so, it's really nice.
5:13 am
>> there's no problem anymore getting out of bed with my pillow. >> you fluff that thing up before you go to bed, get your head in their where you want it, and the pillow doesn't move. >> sometimes in the past, i've had pillows where it's like i get really warm. and then you look at the pillow it's like all stained from sweat and it's disgusting. but this pillow, it's stays nice, nice, and comfortable. >> it's just great for me and i love it. >> my six year old son uses my pillow. he loves it and what we forget is that just because they are little people, they still need sleep and they need more sleep than adults. some kids have problems sleeping, they have problems getting to bed. they have problems being fidgety in bed. some kids wake up tired, some kids wake up and not want to go to school. sometimes the fit thing that we find out about kids who have attention issues or focus problems, isn't that they need some medication, sometimes they just need better sleep. (audience clapping)
5:14 am
>> one of the things that i love about my pillow premium is that you can wash it. so we're going to check in with mike and find out what makes this pillow so superior to any other pillow out there. mike? >> well, patty, not only be able to wash but you can also dry it. and when i set out to invent this pillow, i wanted it to have everything. so not only do i warranty it 10 years, to not go flat, i didn't want it to get any dirty. i wanted to be able to wash and dry it. with all my experimentation i did, i finally came up with the right patented fill that you could do that with. and other pillows that we've tried, i've got them right here. this first o here with that fiber fill, look what happened to it. >> it looks distorted. >> that's terrible. now i see it might match the guy with the big head but it's not going to match anybody else's, absolutely terrible. the next one, we actually just set this one in here. we didn't actually wash and dry because it says absolutely do not wash and dry it. and so when this is dirty, when this goes flat, you're done. >> well, and that's the little portable heater. that's the one you sweat on, so. >> right, right, right, right.
5:15 am
so that one's going to not only get full of sweat but it's going to be disgusting. >> that's no good. >> absolutely disgusting. yeah. it's even gotten worse. you've lost some, i mean it's. >> what's happening? >> this is your, this is the one with your down and most expensive. this one here actually said you could wash and dry it. >> okay, well there is way too much dust going on. and it brings me to and um, allergies and people that think that. >> and my pillow is non-allergenic and it's warranty 10 years not to go flat. it doesn't matter how many times you wash and dry it. i even used premcor threads so the thread won'tven wear out. if it doesn't come out, look this is the pillow i currently use, and i don't know how many times i've washed and dried it. it's the same pillow, the same everything's the same, nothing changes. it's my beautiful pillow but it's also non-allergenic, i can breathe, and it's clean. >> well, you know and a lot of people mypillow.com and also your followers on facebook talk about how the pillow actually gets better and better and better. >> so people don't be afraid to wash and dry you're my pillow, it is amazing when it comes out of the dryer.

(audience clapping) >> we've heard from several different testimonials, mike, about how popular the my pillow premium is. how much they love it. how it's changed their lives in fact. >> and you know patty, i hear thousands of testimonies every week. it's just so surreal to me when i set out to create the world's best pillow, i wanted you to be able to walk down the street and say what would you like to be able to see in a pillow. and if they said i want to be able to wash and dry it. well, my pillow does that. if they said i want it to be able to conform to my exact individual needs, my pillow does that. i want it to stay cool, my pillow does that. i want it to be price right, so it can last 10 years and give it value, my pillow does that. i want it to come with a guarantee in case it doesn't work, my pillow does that.
